If you are experiencing any type of foot pain, you may be tempted to purchase over-the-counter orthotic devices such as heel cups or insole inserts to alleviate the problem. While these products may offer some relief, nothing can help you as well as custom orthotic devices can. Learn why custom-made orthotics fabricated by the Footmaxx System may be right for you and discuss your options with your podiatrist.
Benefits of Custom-made Orthotics
Orthotics are devices that are worn inside the shoe to address any number of foot conditions. They may be recommended as an alternative to invasive foot surgery or to provide relief from bunion pain. Custom-made orthotics offer several benefits, including:
- Targeted treatment: Since custom orthotics are manufactured per your doctor’s specifications, you can be sure they will precisely address your foot problems and provide the most therapeutic effect.
- Guaranteed fit: High-tech orthotics can be created with the Footmaxx System which uses computerized measurements to gauge size, gait, and pressure. This ensures the most accurate, individualized fit possible for optimal effectiveness and comfort.
- Superior support: The custom design of your orthotics gives your foot the exact amount of support it needs in every area. Better support can lead to pain relief and improved posture.
It is important to note that, while effective in many cases, orthotics are not for everyone. Some conditions will require foot surgery or other specialized treatment options. It is always best to discuss your options with your doctor and decide on the best course of treatment together.
